I get a lot of students who are extremely weak readers, and who have no decoding ability or strategies for reading. SOFTREAD 1 and 2 books have been extremely effective, providing them with the TOOLS and the strategies they need. I now use the books for 6 LD students, including 2 Dyslexic students.
I also use the SOFTREAD book for all new 3rd grade students, as I find my students read much better using it, and much faster than the program used in school. They also love the card games that support the book.
I have used many reading books, and this has been the most effective for me!
Thank you so much!
